“It’s all been very quick”


Josep Guardiola spoke to Barça TV and www.fcbarcelona.cat immediately after putting pen to paper to the deal that commits him to FC Barcelona for the next two seasons.

The new first team coach spoke about his meteoric rise to take the reins of the first team and revealed that his signature had been a mere formality: “It’s all been very quick. I decided to coach a short time ago and today we have formalised something that the president had already announced a few days ago. The only thing we’ve done today is make it official in front of you all”.

Focussed on Barça B

Barça B has to be in a higher division. There’ll be plenty of time to talk and think about the future”. However he revealed that the preparation of the first team is on track: “We’re following the necessary steps, so don’t worry”.
